And this means that you need people from all walks of life, even those that you vehemently disagree with most of the time, because on occasion, their ideas will be the ones that fit a particular problem, and if you have brow beaten and chased them away, then you no longer have that resource when you need it later.
Skepticism is an "ism" though.
